Muse frontman Matt Bellamy has released a new solo song inspired by COVID-19 called “Tomorrow’s World.”
The soft piano ballad takes an optimistic look at the current state of the world and focuses on the days ahead. “This song captures my mood and feelings whilst in lockdown,” he said in a statement. “I have been reminded of what really matters in life and have discovered growing optimism, appreciation and hope for the future.”
“The song title comes from an old BBC TV show called Tomorrow’s World, which I watched as a child in the Eighties,” Bellamy said, “and always enjoyed the wild futuristic predictions of what life would be like now. It all seems rather lovely, comforting and naive in retrospect and reminds me that none of us ever really know what the future holds.”

“Tomorrow’s World” marks the second solo release from Bellamy. He previously released “Pray (High Valyrian)” for the 2019 Game of Thrones compilation album, For the Thrones.
Last year, Muse released the Origin of Muse boxset featuring remastered editions of their first two albums along with b-sides, demos, and live performances.
